What a weekend...what happened!?! I'm going to watch the game replay today at 4:00 p.m. on FSN Prime Ticket to try and figure it out. Jullien's game was a close one all the way until the very end, with 3:56 left in the game, we were down 22-17. Our quarterback threw deep with a guy wide open. Not just any guy, this is our fastest guy AND he hardly ever drops passes. It was a perfect pass, right in his hands, almost in the end zone...but he dropped it! He felt so bad...it would have probably clinched the win for us. But we ended up throwing an interception on the next play. They scored another touchdown to finish the game off. Jullien played really well, but was upset because he got completely blocked by three guys on a 94 yard kick off return for a touchdown. Like I always tell him...nobody's perfect.
My stepson also lost both of his Freshman A and B games (he plays in both). The A team got KILLED! The B team did a little better but still lost. I got some good pictures but of course I was talking to my friend when Adam went up and made a great catch...missing the whole shot. He looked over and immediately yelled, "Did ya get that?" I shook my head no and yelled, "SORRY!" Needless to say I never heard the end of it all weekend, LOL!
Finishing off the weekend was Elijah's big game. Both teams were undefeated, so we knew it was going to be a battle. Right when we got there our mouths dropped, the ENTIRE team was HUGE. They did not have one small guy, and this particular team has been playing together for years. It was blazing hot (our little beach boys don't do well in the heat), not to mention our biggest guy was playing sick and one of our best running backs was out with a broken arm. This left us with only 19 players. We played good the first half but we were beat down by the second half. Elijah scored a touchdown at the very end of the game and the final score was 27-8 yikes!
We stopped on the way home at McDonald's and ate...then my stomach started cramping up. I was sitting in the car, with pains that felt like I was in labor (no, I'm not exaggerating either). We finally made it home and I spent the next two hours in the bathroom. I thought maybe I had food poisoning...but it has lasted all weekend. So I guess it's just the stomach flu. MAN, THIS WAS A ROUGH WEEKEND!
